There's a Spanish SF magazine called Gigamesh (http://www.gigamesh.com/). I don't know if they publish original stories or just translated reprints, but you could try them.

As for where to find translators--there I can't help you. I have no idea, I'm afraid.

Maybe a local university could help, if you went to the foreign languages department? Just a thought. Might give some graduate student or a professor an opportunity to hone their real world skills...

About the university... it could work.

About the spanish magazine... it seem that they dont publish original stories.

I relly need help with this. Itīs sad that people who doesnīt write in english cant participate or send their works to any magazines.

Try checking out http://www.upc.edu/cienciaficcion/. They sponsor the largest cash prize for science fiction/fantasy. Entries can be in Spanish, English, or Catalan (and maybe one other). Someone at the university might know who to put you in contact with at least.
